James Harden Becomes First Player Since Kobe Bryant With Back-to-Back 50 Point Games

The Houston Rockets hosted the Los Angeles Clippers Friday night. The Rockets were without starting point guard Chris Paul as they tried to bounce back from Wednesday’s loss against the Los Angeles Lakers.

James Harden did everything he could to put his team in a position to win – scoring 51 points. Unfortunately for Houston that wasn’t enough to take down the Clippers, who won by a final score of 128-118.

Harden had also scored 51 points in the Rockets loss to the Lakers on Wednesday – making him the first player since Kobe Bryant in 2007 to score 50 or more points in back-to-back games.

Harden, who is one of the front runners for MVP now has three 50+ point games so far this season — which is more than the rest of the entire NBA have combined. The only other players to score 50 or more points in a game this season are the Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James and the Washington Wizards’ Bradley Beal, who each have done it once.
